night on this program we showed you this chart from the southern poverty law center. the number of extreme militia groups in america is at an all-time high. record high. now, today everyone is lathered up and talking about how senator rand paul is so fantastic in his filibuster to delay the confirmation of cia chief john brennan. but let's not forget what rand paul actually said when he took to the senate floor to talk about the obama administration's drone program and policy of targeted killings. this is what has me fired up tonight. >> that americans could be killed in a cafe in san francisco or in a restaurant in houston or at their home in bowling green, kentucky is an abomination. it is something that should not and cannot be tolerated in our country. >> tolerated? anybody talking about doing that? rand paul goes to the well of the senate and fuels the very nut jobs we heard about from the southern poverty law center. the senator from kentucky, you know what he is doing? he is inflaming the extremists by saying that the government might execute drone strikes on any american wh

contrast to the real harm inflected on seniors by the president's health care law. that's their quote. no longer 55? it's in or near retirement, which can mean whatever paul ryan wants it to mean. moderate republicans in the gop a little bit nervous tonight. an anonymous republican lawmaker who was in the meeting with ryan told "the hill" republicans made commitments to their constituents at age 55. if they go back on their promise, it will be problematic for many of them. well, that's good news for democrats. you can't trust these guys anyway. john boehner, you think he cares? no, he doesn't care. when he was asked about the new medicare plan, he completely brushed it off. >> i think we'll let them work it out, and we'll see what outcome they get. >> sure, let them work it out. boehner doesn't have to commit to any changes. he feels extremely safe. as long as house districts are gerrymandered in his favor, and they are. this is why republicans continue to obstruct with plans like the ryan budget. they don't want to change the status quo when the rich are doing so doggone well. how did th

go and live with my relatives in newark for a while. and i was able to go to rutgers law school the next year because of a national defense student loan. so i'm running, because of the opportunities that i had -- i'm under no illusion, if i grew up now into the circumstances that i was born into, i wouldn't be here as a state senator running for the governor of new jersey. >> senator, one of the local papers said you should not be written off, and having just heard your introductory remarks of this campaign, i don't think you can be written off in new jersey. and they said, the local papers said that you are the anti-christie. how do you see yourself as the anti-christie? >> well, you know, i see myself as, there's certainly a stark contrast between myself and governor christie. governor christie supports. his idea of jump-starting the economy is to propose a trickle-down income tax cut last area. and me and his budget addressed this year, he stated his support for it again. i support property tax cuts for everyone else. you know, he coddles millionaires while the rest of new jersey

columbia, and later law. he decided to work helping people in his own community. a peaceful kind of guy. is he some bounder who doesn't take responsibility for his manhood? actually, just the opposite. one marriage, faithful husband, good kids. from all appearances, a really caring father. goes to games for the kids. so what is it the haters fear about this guy? what do they hate? that he is black? is that it? is it the gun issue? he didn't even push gun issues until newtown. the same of the gang of eight, right there in the middle. so what is it they hate in this guy? they should be flaweding him as a role model. this country is going to be a united country 100 years from now, this is just the guy you would want out there standing there as our role model. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. america is on the brink of something very dangerous. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i am not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. i'm not

. thanks to a new report by the southern poverty law center, we know that anti-government patriot groups are now at an all-time high in this country. we need to pay attention to this, folks. the increase in threats on the president of the united states and other government targets is similar to the period of time before the oklahoma city bombing. researchers are out front, asking the american government to create an interagency task force to deal with the problem before it's too late. so let's just break down a few numbers here. in 2008, there were only 149 known militia groups in this country. last year this were 1,360, more than eight times as many. houston, we got a problem. and as you can see from the southern poverty law center's chart, the last time we saw this number of armed nationalist groups was in the clinton years. it was a similar spike back in 1995, just as we are seeing today. now the president of the southern poverty law center has written a letter to the department of homeland security and the justice department recommending two departments combine resources to pr

they're trying to fool the public into thinking they supported the law. the big panel weighs in. >>> plus -- former congressman bob may of ohio is going after his fellow republican, speaker john boehner. >>> and he's the activist who dressed up like a pimp to exsuppose acorn corruption. >> when i said i'll turn tricks, i was expecting them to like, whoa! they just heard it and it was business as usual. >> now james o'keefe is paying $100,000 to a victim of his stunt. today, ex-acorn employee juan carlos vera joins me for an exclusive. >>> thanks for watching. i remember when president obama got elected and they did the stimulus package and the republicans just couldn't wait to say, oh, this is obama's economy. you know, we show you this chart every month. the united states economy has experienced three straight years, that would be 36 months, of private sector job growth. more than 6 million jobs have been added after the worst crisis since the great depression. the trend did not reverse this month. why is that significant? in this -- and this is what has me fired up tonight bec

at one point, justice antonin scalia said the law, once a civil rights landmark, now amounted to, quote, a per pep weighs of racial entitlement. and that remark created the sharpest ex-ching of the morning with justice sonia sotomayor on the other end. quote, do you think the right to vote is a racial entitlement? she later asked the lawyer challenging the law with an edge in her voice that left little doubt she was responding to justice scalia's statement. "do you think that racial discrimination in voting has ended, there there is none anywhere?" i'd like to be able to watch the exchange on my tv or ipad. when going through the confirmation in 2009, societoma said i like the idea. when i've been asked to join experiments of using cameras in the courtroom, i have volunteered. telling charlie rose, quote, i don't think most viewers take the time to actually delve into either the briefs or the legal arguments to appreciate what the court is doing, she said. they speculate about oh, the judge favors this point rather than that point. very few of them understand what the process is,

. in a new book about immigration policy, bush and his co-author write "those who violated the law can remain but cannot obtain a cherished fruits of citizenship." in the book, bush continues, he says "a grant of citizenship is an undeserving reward for conduct that we cannot afford to encourage. however, illegal immigrants who wish to become citizens should have the choice of returning to their native countries and applying through normal immigration processes that now would be much more open than before." this is a far cry from jeb bush's position on a path to citizenship as recently as a year ago. >> you have to deal with this issue. you can't ignore it. and so either a path to citizenship, which i would support, and that does put me probably out of the mainstream of most conservatives, or a path to legalization, a path to residency of some time. >> less than six months ago, reporters wrote headlines like this -- jeb bush supports path to citizenship. today it's jeb bush, path to citizenship not needed. this flip-flop may look strange to the american mainstream, but for jeb bush, i
